Lord of the Rings Forum Mafia
“There is only one Lord of the Ring, only one who can bend it to his will. And he does not share power.”
“That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo… and it’s worth fighting for.”
This is a closed setup, i.e. there is no rolelist or classcard list. You will each receive a class card in dms with unique abilities and flavour.
The mafia will communicate in a private message on the forums.
Some classes may have abilities that perform the same effect at night as this is a high-power setup.
Days night cycles are 72/24, with the first 24 hours for the day dedicated to voting for the location of the day/night cycle and the remaining 48 hours dedicated to lynching.
There is a day one lynch.
The lynch is majority and EoD plurality unless specified by the location.
Day abilities may be performed regardless of what phase the day is in.
Every class has a hammering passive, this activates if the player hammers a player for a majority lynch, or if they are the last player to vote on a player for a plurality lynch.
